Finding a lawyer in Syderstone for brain injuries
Whether you live in Syderstone or anywhere else in the UK, it does not matter. If you have an accident which was not your own fault, and this results in you having a brain injury, then you or someone on your behalf should use an injury lawyer in Syderstone at Accident Advice Helpline to make a personal injury compensation claim.
Talking with an injury lawyer in Syderstone about brain injuries
There are lots of different brain injuries that can occur as the result of an accident. Even the mildest — concussion — can have long-term effects, but the more severe ones can be life-changing for the victim and those close to them. If they are no longer able to care for themselves, there can be the heart rending decision whether to cope at home or put them into full time nursing care, and sometimes they are so affected that there’s no choice.
It does not matter how mild or severe the brain injury may be — if it was caused by someone else’s fault or negligence, a family member should be talking to an injury lawyer in Syderstone about making a personal injury compensation claim.
The effects for the victim and their family
For the family, the effects of a brain injury can make it feel like living with a different person, and some of them are:
- A lack of coordination;
- Trouble with balancing and walking;
- Anxiety and depression;
- Difficulty with understanding or comprehending;
- Changes to the senses of smell, taste and touch;
- Finding concentrating difficult;
- The emotional reactions can change dramatically;
- A loss of, or altered, speech;
- Loss of memory;
- A shortened attention span;
- General behaviour changes; and
- Body temperatures out of control.
Changes as drastic as these can make life very difficult for the victim, particularly as the injuries are not visible. They can have trouble understanding what is happening to them, which can be very frustrating and cause mood swings, making life difficult for everyone.
Accident Advice Helpline can help you to make a brain injury claim
Just because the mental state of the victim is not good enough to make the claim themselves, that does not mean that they should lose out on the compensation to which they are entitled. They may well need the compensation more than for any other injury type; there could be extra care costs involved, as well as many other things to make their life more bearable.
We have been helping brain injured people and their families for over 15 years. You will find our advisors friendly and compassionate. They will take the details of the accident and injury, then take the stress of making a claim out of your hands, making the whole process much easier for you. You can contact us on our helpline number, 0800 180 4123.
